It feels sort of like a death that Osmo is leaving. At his concerts, I loved sitting up close to one side so I could watch his gestures and facial expressions. They ran such a gamut and were always so reflective of the music. When it became delicate, he would put his baton down, become very still and direct with just his hands. One time I remember he asked the audience from the stage,“Please mute your coughs. An unmuted cough is the same as a French horn playing mezzo forte.”

— Nils Halker, biologist at the Science Museum of Minnesota
